If you did a default install of XAMPP and haven't changed any settings yet, then it's http://localhost/phpMyAdmin with a username of "root" and a blank password. If you're sure you've changed it and want to verify what it is, you can try to check "" in the phpMyAdmin directory, and look for
Code: Select all
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type']     = 'http';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user']             = 'root';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password']      = '';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['only_db']       = '';

If you're lucky it will be listed. My guess is since you're trying what you think it is and it's not excepting it then the configuration is probably wrong for phpMyAdmin itself. If that's the case then your best bet is to back up the "htdocs" folder (at least what you've put in there so far) and reinstall XAMPP. After you reinstall it go to http://localhost/security/index.php and change it again.
